I started off colouring my hair as a “screw you” to the powers that be because I felt like I had no control, and this was something that I could. For years I’d talked about dying my hair, and I guess I can now tick that off my bucket list. I am thinking I should finally take the plunge and pierce my ears. I have to work my way up to the tattoo. I think my fear of needles will stop me before I get to that point.
